There can be only one!  This matchup will be closer than a #6 vs. #14 matchup should be and I have no idea who is going to make it to the 3rd round.

  1. Jerry had what was in my opinion the easiest first round matchup, now to make up for that he gets the pleasure of playing the GOAT. West is one of the best pure shooters the game has ever seen, but even with the benfit of having a 3 point line there is only so far you can back up against one of the best defensive guards of all time. Two iconic logos collide…Jumpman prevails big 15-4

    This is one of the hardest to pick yet. Any advantage Duncan has with his crafty play around the basket is negated by The Admirals defense. I’m sure after practicing against each other they both know who the favorite is, but I really have no idea. I’m giving the nod to The Admiral 15-14, my reason…I loved his Nike Pumps and the Mr Robinsons Neithborhood commercials were awesome.

  2. The Logo’s reward for beating john Stockton in the 1st round is a 2nd round matchup with the Jumpman. Jordan has the advantage over West in every way and will walk in to an Elite 8 matchup with the winner of the Bird/Bryant showdown. Jordan Wins 15-2. West hits a late 2 pointer to avoid the shutout.

    The Jordan/Pippen matchup was a battle between 2 brothers that didn’t want to give an inch, but the Duncan/Robinson matchup would be like a son playing his father. This would be a great game and I can see high fives and smiles after someone scores and laughs after hard fouls, because these 2 really like each other. For a big man, Duncan is a wizard with the ball, but David Robinson has the skills to park that ball in the seats. The Admiral’s speed and strength will be too much for Duncan and Robinson will win. Robinson Wins 15-11

  3. #1 seed Michael Jordan vs #8 Jerry West. I won’t spend much time on this matchup because neither will his Airness. I don’t think Jerry West will score. Do the UNC fans out there feel the same?

    Also, we have #6 Tim Duncan vs #14 David Robinson. Master vs Apprentice. Teacher vs Student. I didn’t think Charlie listed enough “vs” examples so I wanted to add a couple more. In my opinion, David Robinson may have taught Timmy D just a little too much. I think this will be a hard fought game of 1-on-1 but I think Duncan is just a touch more athletic which will get him the win.
